Can we look beyond partisanship to solve the environmental challenges we are facing? Are we even able to solve those challenges without working across party lines?

On September 13, 2016 in Vancouver, GreenPAC, in partnership with Simon Fraser University's School of Public Policy, will host a high-calibre panel discussion tackling difficult but essential questions like these. Panelists will explore the importance of non-partisan environmental action in Canada’s highly polarized political climate, and share their experiences as environmental leaders in the public sphere.

Tickets no longer available online but are available at the door

Our experienced and remarkable panelists include Vancouver Quadra MP and GreenPAC-endorsed Liberal Joyce Murray; Vancouver city councillor Andrea Reimer,with an outstanding municipal environmental leadership record; and Nancy Olewiler, GreenPAC Expert Panel member, professor at SFU’s School of Public Policy and former director of the school. The panel will be moderated by GreenPAC board member and sustainability expert and lawyer Joanna Kyriazis.

This is a rare opportunity to discuss how to move forward on the urgent environmental issues we face using cooperation and cross-partisanship. Get your ticket today!
